Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 82.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 83.1/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.9.

A bit difficult to digest, but if you can set apart some time to listen to it in one sitting, it's worth it. Carpet Crawlers may be Genesis' best song. If you want to pick out the highlights for future listening, I recommend Carpet Crawlers, the title track, In the Cage, Counting Out Time, It, and Back in NYC.

The last album with Peter Gabriel and probably their best. The music follows the lyrics in a brilliant way.

I've listened to this album many times and I've tried finding flaws in it and I just can't. It's perfect.

At first the Story is bewildering and some of the tracks quite challenging. It's definitely an album worth sticking with though and the more you read and listen the better you understand and more rewarding it becomes.

Genesis absolute best. Still no favourite band of mine. In between Rush/Marillion/Pink Flyd and Beatles. A bit to "fancy".

If you have the patience and time to listen to this album, I don't think there's anything as rewarding in all of rock music. It is a very challenging record but once you understand it you will appreciate the haunting melodies and amazing storytelling. "It" is probably my favorite track. The Lamb really falls short in terms of accessibility, but it more than makes up for that by just being a real mindblower of an album to those who find time for it.
